Barcelona are always being linked with dozens of players across the two world but are set to miss out on two stars who have been rumored targets of the Catalan giants.
Up first is Athletic forward Nico Williams who has just put pen to paper on a new deal with the Basque side.
There had been whispers that Barca wanted Williams in the summer on a free transfer, particularly as he’s good mates with Lamine Yamal, Gavi and Alejandro Balde.
However, Williams has now signed on at Athletic for another three seasons, meaning all those clubs who had been keen on him have now been disappointed.
The other one that got away could well be Gabriel Moscardo. Sporting director Deco is said to be a big fan of the midfielder, while Premier League club Chelsea have also been interested in his signature.
Yet the rumor mill is now pretty convinced that Moscardo will reject both clubs and move to Paris Saint-Germain for €25 million. PSG opened talks with him several days ago and appear to be in pole position to land the talented youngster.
